Sabbatical – Personal Risk Management
Time for a sabbatical – no computers for a while. BossKitty is taking a necessary break in routine. In depth research has dominated my attention to the detriment of more urgent requirements. Even though the news is especially disturbing, there are too many personal things demanding my attention. The shift in global circumstances may be influencing some if this attention. BossKitty is engaged in personal risk-management.
Having decided to be a survivor, my personal life needs more organization. Thanks to previous administrations, this country is not in any condition to engage in even more conflicts, political or environmental. The Texas Drought and consecutive 100+ degree days may have something to do with this decision. My forest and land are suffering and my vulnerability to heat stroke are major concerns.
The Science Channels have programmed so many catastrophic scenarios, together with the sequence of current events, not emphasized by celebrity conditioned media, my research has shifted my personal focus. I am accountable for my own survival, I expect little or no help from government agencies. Government agencies providing assistance for emergencies are in such poor condition right now that I expect they would require assistance from individuals in the future. Personal risk management is taking over. I seek to delay the condition of being too dependent on outside assistance as possible, This society and culture is so co-dependent with the government that my focus is on reducing my participation.
I may write now and then about my efforts to prepare for the unexpected. But, keeping track of global sadness and rampant inequities must be put on the back burner. A wise man once reminded me that I alone cannot change the world. It must be a consensus. All I have control of is my immediate behavior. My personal orbit may expand if I am successful.
